Abstract

The aggregation pheromone was most effective in combination with host-related coattractants such as fermenting whole wheat bread dough or fermenting fig juice. Four other nitidulid species responded significantly to the pheromone of C. hemipterus: C. mutilatus, C. lugubris, C. obsoletus and C. (Urophorus) humeralis. -from Authors
